Budget for Christmas in Kenya


If you are planning to spend money for Christmas, the ideal budget should be between Ksh10,000 and Ksh50,000. But it’s understood that people have different destinations for the Christmas while others are celebrating the festive season without travelling.

For one to enjoy this Christmas, here is the ideal budget for you:

Transport—Ksh 5,000

Maize Flour—Ksh2,000

Mbuzi/chicken/beef—Ksh 8,000



Other items—Ksh5,000


Ideally, you should spend Ksh26,000 every Christmas. However, there are people who will spend over Ksh50,000 especially those who’ll be celebrating New Year.

With Ksh 10,000, you can only celebrate with your nuclear family.

If you have a budget of below Ksh10,000 please don’t travel to the village because you may lack even transport back to the city. Everyone will be waiting for you, you’ll spend not less than Ksh20,000.
